Tools For Your Development

LYF4U on YouTube


And now it’s time to celebrate your million dollar life!!
The most priceless moments are not distinguished by money!
Like hot soup on a cold day in your tummy
When we look to the moon rise or sunrise we all see the same.
Its not who dares wins the name of the game
The seashores of the world are for one and for all
Open out your arms don’t curl up in a ball
The purity of a hug from our children cannot bought
Its all in your thinking – it’s that very 1st thought
The love of your pet is unconditionally given
You live in paradise that’s where you are livin
The abundance of birdlife that flies freely in the trees
.. Morning song, butterflies and even the bees.
The blue skies and warm winds that soothe your soul
Especially when life has taken its toll
So feel the serener of warm water cascading
And let go of your worries, for they will be tomorrow’s memories fading
Lifes to short to be grumpy and dull,
Reach out and lift up get out of your hole
Yeah life is a celebration a celebration of a million
Because dear friend it where you are livin

Personal1.Personal Development

This is the subject I am very passionate about. The fact that we are governed by our beliefs, habits, behaviors, our philosophy, physiology, history, psychology all lead back to Personal development. What you learnt, experienced, and inherited along your life journey. IQ- Intelligence Quotient ) is one thing.. yet without EQ (Emotional Quotient) it means little. The powerful transformation of all is getting to the point in your life where you have reached your mental pain threshold and say enough...Whether you are a judge, or janitor, young or old, black or white you have the power to change your mind drivers and personal life and your life are quite simply what you think. If there is an aspect of your life you are not happy with ,you do have chose's..

Whatever it is you want picture that in your mind- you can change- you are human- you are not a won't always be easy-but it will always be worth it.

"If you can't figure out your purpose, figure out your passion. For your passion will lead you right into your purpose."
—Bishop T.D. Jakes

Recreation2. Leisure and Recreation

When was the last time you had a true day off.. I'm not talking a day t o catch up on chores about your I'm talking a day where you gave up the internet, cell phones, watching the time, and truly connected with life.. played perhaps with your children, ran on the beach, went dancing, swum in the sea or river..a day where you wear casual clothing, where you are present in this the gift of your life. where you stopped to smell the roses.. taking true leisure time for oneself in the soul food elixir that your spirit soaks up and smoothes down your stresses of the everyday over paced world.. grant yourself permission to take this time regularly.. Form a fun list on how you can do that, and set a trigger date to remind you each month to create a fun experience..ahh I can feel your body relaxing at just the very notion of it..Maree McManaway

It is in his pleasure that a man really lives; it is from his leisure that he constructs the true fabric of self.
Agnes Repplier

Health3. Health and Fitness

Those who do not have time to exercise will soon have to find time for illness and medical appointments. Your health today is your health wealth of your future. Do not live blinded or asleep to any other way of thinking. Find the movement that feels right for you.. Know your healthy intake options and take responsibility for your life. if you are a parent you are also leading your children by your example..What does you current health teach them? Self love and care starts with you. I have never met anyone who did not have within themselves the ability to change their current health. The health you are in today is a direct reflection of what you have done in your past... if you want to change it, change what you do form this moment on..Maree McManaway

"If we are creating ourselves all the time, then it is never too late to begin creating the bodies we want instead of the ones we mistakenly assume we are stuck with.”
- Deepak Chopra

Career4. Career

Seek the clues of your past for answers to your true purpose.. such as did you play alone or with people? This answers weather you are best suited to working alone or with others in a team.. there are many other questions similar you can ask..

Recognize that some careers have a life span, in that they may become too physically demanding for you given time, so will your career transition you? .

If you are seeking a change the fear of change can be paralyzing-Fear of success, lack of finances, failure can overwhelm your decision to move on.. If you are heavy with fear i suggest you take it part time on your future and new career until the transition is stable enough to become full time..there is a wonderful quick read book called Who moved my cheese.. its is important to know when its time to move on..those without fear it may be simply a case of up skilling by taking a night class on line study..and taking the success. Maree McManaway

"Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is always to try just one more time.”
(Thomas A. Edison)

Community5. Community

We are all part of our community. Whether it be our children's children, or our neighbors children.. we all have a part in the caring of our community in some way, and the nourishment of its future. What part can/do you play that gives back or pays it forward? If not now then when? How do you want to be remembered? As the person who no one knew, or the person who made a difference by giving back in some way. You have the choice..when you give your time or skills to another you are saying I am connected belong, this is my place. These are my roots. I am grateful...Maree McManaway

Your community is the people around you.."I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel."
— Maya Angelou

Love6. Loving/Relationships

The smallest things make woman the giving of a flower, like acknowledging her look, compliments, a quick call/text to tell her you are thinking of her, pre-planning a date, gathering the wood, listening with full attention, letting her know she is protected, safe, that she is your number one in your world! Let her into your world...Tell us about your day/job/feelings. We want to know how you are. We admire a man who knows who he is and owns that...
Maree McManaway

Let him know he means the world to you- that he lights up your day when he arrives/comes home. Men need so much more approval and acknowledgment than we do-so give more than you would want! Men need so much more approval and acknowledgment than we do-so give more than you would want!
Maree McManaway

- Make a space in your heart life without conditions..Conditions sabotage your 1st to ask, don't wait for the other-you have a 50% chance of a yes- look for your partner where you have not been.. the same place will not find the new..

Know that sexual pleasure refers to sex play, indulgent erotica, outside stimulus while sexual satisfaction in the art of making love satisfying all levels, emotionally and physically ,in a bonding way for both parties. There is much more to this topic...that is covered in coaching.

A relationship is with 2 people- you need to own/cherish/protect your half, it is not your partners job to make you happy.....
Maree McManaway

I believe in the immeasurable power of love; that true love can endure any circumstance and reach across any distance..
Steve Mariboli

Wealth7. Financial Fitness

Money must first be made in your mind- If you can't see it in a open believing way in your mind, you can't see it in your are the maker..

Wealthy people invest, poor people consume.. Your path to financial independence is a 2 step process.

1. Make the money(that's the easy bit)
2. Change your habits (the hard bit) ..wealth is often simpler that those beliefs allow you to think

The best way to double your money is to fold it in half and put it back in your pocket

Wealth9. Family

Family/Friends can come with their own set of communication challenges and joys.. it can bring out the worst and the best within you..Are there certain behaviors that you can start/stop that would help you to live more harmoniously? Always have respect for one and other, regardless of whether you agree or disagree with another's ways.. learn to find the good points and work from there.. love and appreciate the luxury of having links to your genetic history, and with friend to make wonderful memories with and through ..tis better to have 1 or 2 true friends than many who know little of you .

People who get along with their parents have just as many family conflicts as anyone else. They just choose to accept those conflicts as part of life, and love their kin anyway. For the love of themselves...

If you are being harmed in any way seek help. Be thankful for the friends and family you have and you'll end up having more, if you concentrate on what you don't have, you'll never have any.
Oprah Winfrey.
